Come to think of it, their song titles are pretty strange. Thing's like "Yellow Submarine," "I am the Walrus," and "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" come to mind.

Sure they're song names are sometimes strange, but you have to admit, they are one of the best bands in the world!

Bizarre and creative song titles like Octopus's Garden, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, I Am the Walrus, Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution 9, and Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.

All of these are official titles. Yes, it's "JAPAIN", not "Japan". They are clearly written on the back of the covers of the western editions of their albums. I have some other Japanese albums by other artists as well and none of them have such messy titles. Also the capital letters are so randomly used. - Martin_Canine
